Paradox Interactive and Haemimont Games announce the sci-fi city-building game, Surviving Mars, is launching today on the Mac App Store. Created by Haemimont Games, the developers of several entries in the Tropico series and of Victor Vran, Surviving Mars tasks players with developing sustainable infrastructure on Mars, sending forth a brave team of colonists, and helping their population survive – and thrive.
Surviving Mars challenges players with building a sustainable future on Mars by relying on smart resource management, key colonists, and supplies from sponsors back on Earth. First, players select their space agency, each with its own strengths and goals, and begin determining a location for the ideal colony. Once the flag has been planted, players must get to work on building habitable domes and infrastructure, research new possibilities, and utilize drones to unlock more elaborate ways to shape and expand the settlement. Experience the drama around the lives of colonists, each with individual attributes that can aid in the colony’s progress or throw a wrench in the whole endeavor. There will be a myriad of challenges to face on the red planet, but most important of all is keeping your colonists alive. Not an easy task on a strange new planet, especially with unexplained mysteries sure to pop up.
